Hackney Wild Walks, Outdoor Families, Outdoor Family Camping -

Following the government's latest guidance on emerging from national lockdown, we are excited to announce that we will be restarting our Family Wild Walks!

Wild Walks – ‘adventures for children to take their adults on’ – are short walks of about 2km (taking about 2 hours), perfect for 3-7 year olds.

As a community, every two weeks, we go on adventures exploring our local green spaces in Hackney and nearby! The aim is to create an environment where children feel they have permission to play outdoors, connect with nature and have fun!

Our next Wild Walks are:

  • Sunday 18 April 11am, Finsbury Park Playground
  • Sunday 2 May 11am, Clapton Common
  • Sunday 16 May 11am, Finsbury Park Playground
